Spotlight Focus

Overview

Spotlight allows a user to create interactive maps that can be embedded within their own web pages and web applications.

The great thing about it is, as a GIS manager you can configure the map easily, or you can put control in the hands of your web manager. 

Using the Spotlight tools a user can easily, (without coding) publish and share a map onto a web page, with the option to include: Map Navigation Controls, Address / Location search box, Layer controls and Annotations.


Either way the map creator gets to choose whether to include map controls, layer controls, the size of the map and which layers you want to include before pressing a button to get the iFrame code.
